I agree with everything you said but I am cautious about placing it in cinematography – I currently have The Irishman, 1917, Joker, A Hidden Life and the Lighthouse as my five for this category.
Are you confident that Parasite could be acknowledge here also?
No. I can also see snubs coming for the cast.
After The Last Emperor went 9 for 9 with no nominations for both great leads, the Director win/nom might be enough for them.October 19, 2019 at 5:56 am #1203143500
Darling, shut the hell up. You’re going to be suffering me a little bit more. Johansson is the frontrunner. You better accept the truth.
I like you more when you break character and let your true nature shine through.October 19, 2019 at 5:54 am #1203143498
I love the trailer for The Good Liar and am thinking that Ian McKellan could very well get a Best Actor nomination (and Helen Mirren a Best Actress nomination). It looks to be a really fascinating film with great performances!
Iv E been toying with that notion as well and have Ian in my predix for now.October 19, 2019 at 5:47 am #1203143489
She’s certainly in the running for Razzie this year. Razzie voters are far savvier than generally thought.
I adore Meryl and she needs one of these to fill that empty spot on her overloaded shelf. Fingers crossed she shows up to accept.October 19, 2019 at 5:33 am #1203143477
Yes he says it every freaking day dependant upon when he gets up, in fine derisive fashion.October 19, 2019 at 5:21 am #1203143472
Well well well!
I’m usually cautious about calling a film a masterpiece.
Iv e seen things in my life I still can’t believe, so I could sense where the film was going. But it didn’t matter.
The way the story unfolds is a multilayered thing of beauty and more intriguing than anything I’ve seen in a decade.
Every aspect is a work of art; the tech crew, the cast, the screenplay, and the Direction.
I can’t single out just one member of this wonderful cast. They are a true team. All of them drew an emotional response from me.
But what I truly appreciated about Parasite is the social commentary.
Bong Joon -ho is now in my top ten list of working dorectors.
I can’t fault Snowpiercer for it’s craft and unique vision and Tilda is a hoot. But all of that fighting and kicking and killing in such a claustrophobic setting isn’t my favorite thing.
But this slight glitch (for me) is a distant memory.
Highly recommended folks.October 19, 2019 at 4:53 am #1203143454
Etchie (or Etchy, I don’t remember) was so annoying it made me stop visiting GD for a couple of years.
LOL! Ms Etch was his dozenth identity after being banned over and over. He was usually good with me but it wasn’t hard seeing how he was with most other members.
Also you might want to know that Etch is still among us.
LOL!October 19, 2019 at 4:40 am #1203143448
Sis, you don’t remember? If people weren’t blaming Meryl, they damn sure were being racist as fuck towards Ruth Negga. Before IMDB shut down the message boards, the Amy Adams stans over there called her all types of n-words and saying she only got in to fill a quota. It was a mess.
Gabourey Sidibe did a chat with us at GD to talk about her role in Precious. We just got started when we could hear the poisonous vitriol aimed at her. Things I don’t hear around here.
She handled it with grace and class. I have so much respect for her.
It brought home that things aren’t changing fast enough.October 18, 2019 at 3:51 pm #1203143045
Lol!! This is funnier than i thought it would be.October 18, 2019 at 3:48 pm #1203143037
This has to be the third film adaptation of Oliver Twist I’ve heard about being in the works this past decade. First, there were talks of a film reboot of the 1968 Oscar-winning movie musical, then there were talks of an original movie musical starring Ice Cube, and now this.
Though the stage musical and subsequent film adaptation, Oliver!, has always had a special place in my heart. I appeared in a community theater production when I was 16 years old as a workhouse boy and a member of Fagin’s gang.
Can you tell us anything about the director proposed for this?October 18, 2019 at 3:17 pm #1203143018
Since Meryl is showered in accolades, she needs one of these. Wonder how many votes she’ll get? Probably a LOT.October 18, 2019 at 3:08 pm #1203143007
Ah yes teridax! I can’t remember whether she hated me or not. Likely the former.
